A Complete System

The Arthrex Minimally Invasive Bunionectomy was designed to optimize proven6 minimally invasive techniques. The complete system comes with implants and instrumentation dedicated to minimally invasive bunion correction.

Cut

Arthrex’s low-speed, high-torque MIS power system and percutaneous burrs effectively cut bone while reducing the risk of soft-tissue damage.4

Shift

The patent-pending shifting device allows for precise shifting of the capital fragment laterally to match the patient’s correction needs.

Aim

The trajectory system aids in the percutaneous placement of two parallel guidewires into the capital fragment for screw placement. 

Fixate

Beveled FT screws provide zero-profile fixation and allow for more robust instrumentation. 

Products

Beveled FT Screws

The 45° beveled head provides a zero-profile construct when fully inserted. Offered in 4.0 mm and 3.5 mm sizes. Constant thread pitch to maintain length.

Wound Care

Microcurrents work with the body's natural electrical healing process to provide antimicrobial protection to reduce the risk of infection and support healing of incision sites.

My happiest patients are those that have had traditional open bunion surgery on one side and later have had the Arthrex Minimally Invasive Bunionectomy on the other side. They are able to compare the incredible benefits of minimally invasive surgery firsthand.

The Arthrex Minimally Invasive Bunionectomy has dramatically changed my practice. My patients are having less post-op pain, quicker recovery, and better cosmetic outcomes. Prior to adopting MIS techniques, I approached bunion surgery reluctantly. Now I look forward to it.
